UEA Doctoral College

UEA Doctoral College was launched in March 2019, bringing together the expertise of our six Graduate Schools, doctoral training partnerships and professional services including the Postgraduate Research Service. 

We have over 1500 postgraduate researchers, the largest group of researchers in the University. They contribute substantially to our research environment and output and to the wider life of our community.

Each postgraduate researcher belongs to their School or Institute with personal and professional development and training organised by their Graduate School. The Doctoral College coordinates activities across our institution to create the best environment for our postgraduate research students to thrive.

We seek to deliver an excellent postgraduate research experience, helping researchers make the most of their time at UEA by:

  • Creating a supportive, inclusive and nurturing environment
  • Providing practical support for research and career plans
  • Bringing together best practice and encouraging innovation
  • Organising training and events for the postgraduate research community
